To approve the 2009/10 statement of accounts for audit.
THIS IS A SEPARATELY STAPLED DOCUMENT, TO BE CIRCULATED AFTER THE AGENDA DESPATCH.
The Committee considered report 18/10 of the Head of Finance, which sought approval of the draft statement of accounts 2009/10. The Accounts and Audit Regulations 2003 required the council to approve the draft statement of accounts for external audit by 30 June each year. The committee had authority to approve the draft.
The committee reviewed the draft and asked the officers to insert the correct figure for the total contribution to the pension scheme.
The statement of account included the annual governance statement also. The committee asked for changes to the paragraph referring to testing anti-fraud and corruption measures. The annual governance statement also included Audit Commission assurances on the council’s governance framework; the Audit Commission asked for their removal.
RESOLVED (by eight votes to nil)
To approve the “statement of accounts 2009/10” for audit.
